• County Supervisor Jane Parker Raises $113,000

    Incumbent Demonstrates Strong, Early Support for Re-election in 2016

    Monterey County, CA – The Re-Elect Jane Parker campaign released its fundraising numbers today, showcasing strong support for the experienced incumbent’s re-election campaign for Monterey County’s District 4 Board of Supervisors seat. As of June 30th, the campaign has raised nearly $113,000 ($112,819) from 200 donors.

    “I’m incredibly grateful for the outpouring of broad support so early in the campaign,” said Supervisor Parker, acknowledging that the election is eleven months away on June 7, 2016 and adding, “This  support from donors from all walks of life affirms the value of the work that we are doing together to prevent gang and juvenile violence, protect our area’s water and natural beauty, and create good, local jobs and positive economic development.”

    Demonstrating Parker’s grassroots support, over one-third of contributions are from individuals giving no more than $100. “People clearly want to continue maintaining and improving our local, quality of life. With community support, we’ve been able to change the way the County does business – increasing transparency, fighting for the taxpayer and holding government accountable. Our families and community deserve representatives that work hard and fight for the safety of our residents and the  natural beauty, water and wildlife of our area that contribute so greatly to our economic vitality,” added Parker.

    The only woman currently on the Board, Supervisor Parker represents a vital voice in County government and local politics. Parker has continually championed working families and women’s leadership in the County, including preserving the County Commission on the Status of Women, ensuring inclusion of the Peninsula as a priority investment community for the Early Childhood Development Initiative, and a policy to reduce tobacco sales to children. Jane has proven herself an effective champion for the the entire county of Monterey and the communities she serves– Seaside, Salinas, Marina, Del Rey Oaks, Sand City and the unincorporated former Fort Ord.

    First elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2012, the Parker campaign’s fundraising numbers show the experienced incumbent continues to have strong, broad support. A constant presence in local communities, Supervisor Parker has held over 200 public meetings in District 4 cities. She actively uses social media and email newsletters to stay in touch with constituents and is the only Supervisor who hosts her own website with detailed information about her work in the community.  “Being accessible is so important. It allows me to listen to residents, know the issues, roll up my sleeves and fight for what they care about,” says Supervisor Parker.

    In addition to grassroots support, Supervisor Parker has received endorsements from community leaders and elected officials from across the County, including local State Senator Bill Monning and Assemblymember Mark Stone.
